June 09, 2015 // Franchising.com // Bartonsville, PA - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Bartonsville on June 3. Franchise owner Jim Sirotnak, along with general manager John Milevoi, held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, June 3 to Sunday, June 7 to support Monroe Career Technical Institute and Pocono Mountain East High School.
The new restaurant, located at 3578 Route 611, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Monroe Career Technical Institute or Pocono Mountain East High School.
“I’ve been a fan of Jersey Mike’s since having my first sub while on vacation in Myrtle Beach,” said Sirotnak. “It was the best sub I’d ever tasted, and I knew we needed this product in Northeast Pennsylvania. For many years I planned road trips and vacations around pit-stops at Jersey Mike’s, and it’s so exciting to finally bring these authentic subs to Bartonsville.”
Sirotnak added, “At Jersey Mike’s it’s tradition to give back to the community through a 5-day grand opening fundraiser. We’ve teamed up with Monroe Career Technical Institute and Pocono Mountain East High School to help support activities and programs for students. We can’t wait to open our doors here and we look forward to serving this great community.”
Sirotnak is an exemplary Jersey Mike’s franchise owner who shares the company’s commitment to quality products and exceptional customer service, and who is dedicated to giving back to the local community. Since 2010, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the country have raised nearly $13 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 1 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes. This year, the company’s 5th Annual Jersey Mike’s Month of Giving in March raised more than $3 million for 150 local charities throughout the country.
Started in 1956, Jersey Mike’s now has 1,500 restaurants open and under development nationwide. The company was named the #1 fastest growing chain in the Nation’s Restaurant News 2014 Top 100 and continues to win best sub awards in virtually every market it enters.
The growth is fueled by passionate Jersey Mike’s fans who crave their subs made Mike’s Way® with the freshest vegetables – onions, lettuce and tomatoes – topped off with an exquisite zing of “the juice” – red wine vinegar and olive oil blended to perfection. Jersey Mike’s premium meats and cheeses are sliced on the spot, piled high on in-store baked bread and served up with a helping of neighborly banter from a dedicated and high-energy team.
This is Sirotnak's second Jersey Mike’s location. He opened his first Jersey Mike's in Wilkes-Barre in December 2014.
The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at (570) 421-2800.
